Let's get this straight; This album is not really good, it has nothing exceptional to showcase and it's almost likely to delude the older fans of the Finnish. Thus, I would only recommend to purchase it to the very die-hard fans of the lads, like myself, who want to keep on building their own personal collection of Bodom's albums. But musically speaking I've found this record as a huge let-down. It's quite monotonous, with repetive riffs and sounds song after song. It basically sounds the same from start to finish, and it makes it quite hard to distinguish any song and memorize it. The only rightful exceptions might be 'Roundtrip to Hell and Back' along with the promotional single 'Was it Worth it?" but still a handful of good songs with catchy choruses do not do much to raise the appreciation of an overall dull and tedious album.

I've personally listened to it many many times, trying long and short to find something good about it, or simply trying to convince myself that is indeed a good record; that maybe it was all my fault that I couldn't fully appreciate this album, 'cause I was stuck on their past works, their past glory days. It still dindn't do much. It's not my standards which were too high, it's faulty the album itself. It's jut uninspired, dull, monotonous.

It's like a bad mix of heavy, melodic, thrash mixed with some harsh and cleaner vocals. And while the previous ingredients might have worked just fine, unfortunately the final result in this case is quite disappointing; making it, perhaps, the worst album in the whole Bodom career yet.
Don't get me wrong though, I'm not saying that this album is total garbage, but it's likely the most mediocre record the Finns have released yet and your least favorite if you're into Bodom's music.

I purchased this album through cdspot and it arrived much quicker than expected (only a few days). Included was a hand written thank you note from cdspot (now that's unheard of) which was a pleasent surprise. I will be buying from cdspot in the future.

As for the album, if you like Children of Bodom then you will love this album. It's one of their best and easily one of the best in the metal genre.

The only regret I have is that I didn't buy this sooner!

2011's Relentless Reckless Forever is the seventh full-length studio album by the Finnish Melodic Death Metal band Children Of Bodom. There are nine tracks and the album clocks in at a succinct 36 minutes.

It was seen at the time of its release as something of a return to form for the band as it brought back touches of the speed and neoclassical elements that had been toned down on the Are You Dead Yet? and Blooddrunk records. It's a remarkably slick, professional sounding, expertly produced affair, blending the sounds of records like Are You Dead Yet? and the savagery of earlier stuff like Hatebreeder.

The sound is a mixture of the modern Bodom style of Groove Metal bounce, Slight industrial tinged mechanical sounding riffs, and the occasional slow sections with the early Bodom recipe of Thrash riffs, Death riffs, mostly Melodic lead guitar, frequent guitar solos, a lot of double-kicks, interesting drum fills, and a sort of Power Metal style larger-than-life bombast. That's all topped off with Alexi's instantly recognizable voice.

Some fans aren't so keen on this record, or the two which preceded it, and only enjoy the early stuff, so maybe its not the best place to start. Pick up the classics first, and if you still want some more Bodom this is a good place to go next. I wouldn't necessarily pick this particular record to win over a non-fan with, but I wouldn't neglect it when choosing a best-of playlist. For what its worth, I personally enjoy this album a hell of a lot and listen to it pretty often.

Highlights include the opener `Not My Funeral,' the closer `Northpole Throwdown' and the lyrically offensive but incredibly catchy `Pussfoot Miss Suicide.

Children Of Bodom have never made a bad album (though Are We Dead Yet was the closest they got). This is no exception. Excellent keyboard work, terrific guitar melodies by Laiho and Latvala, and a stellar vocal performance by Laiho should make the album worthy of 5 stars. But it isn't. Not by a long shot. While songs such as "Shovel Knockout" and "Roundtrip To Hell And Back" are arguably some of the band's finest to date, for every great song, there is a song that, by Bodom standards at least, is merely average. You could say they sound "Ugly" in comparison (sorry, had to!). With this and the previous 2 albums, COB have added elements of thrash metal into thier song structures, most noticeable in "Northpole Throwdown". While thrash is perfectly fine, (indeed, thrash got me into metal) it doesn't do Bodom any favors, not on this album. The album as a whole is still better than average, which is what I have come to expect of Bodom, but is still sub-par for Bodom. I would still listen to this over Blooddrunk or Are We Dead Yet? any day. A great album, just not a great Bodom album.
